California Wives' Blood Red Youth

If you were holding off on purchasing the debut ep, Affair from California Wives, the band has released a track from the ep that might change your mind. "Blood Red Youth" is a beautifully written pop filled with catchy melodies, and biting lyrics.

The band will be performing at Schubas on December 22nd, but first they will be stopping by Daytrotter to record a session next month.

   

Reckless Sons rock CMJ thrice

Reckless Sons will be gracing three different stages at this year’s CMJ Music Marathon, which makes perfect sense for a band that has appeal across a variety of NY boroughs. CMJ will be the band’s fourth appearance since their line-up reincarnation, as Matt Butler (vocals) and Anthony Stella (guitar) have been joined by Cass Dillon (guitar/vocals), Josh Pillbox (bass), and Hari Gangleberger (drums). In addition to the three new members and trey of CMJ shows, Reckless Sons have added a few new songs to their repertoire, including “One Step Further,” “Anything But the Truth,” and “She Forgives Me in the Morning.” Drawing influences from guitar-driven, Brit-rock idols and melding them with contemporary, alternative pop vibes, the quintet is in the process of recording a full-length album. In the meantime, check out Reckless Sons next week at Bowery Electric, Crash Mansion, and the McKibbin Lofts on October 19, 22, and 24, respectively.– Meijin Bruttomesso

   

NYC Artists on the rise: Jump Into the Gospel

New York’ s Jump Into the Gospel bounced into the electro-pop at The Studio at Webster Hall on October 13. Sandwiched between Dear Comrade and Diet Kong, Jump Into the Gospel was the “ hallelujah” moment of the night, bringing the evening to its peak with energetic, contagious rhythms, sleek synthesizers, and straight up good pop songs. Powered by Louis Epstein’ s staccato new wave/Brit-pop vocal cadence, JITG pushed through a non-stop set that included “ Humvee Mansion,” for which JITG has a brand new video, “ Photovoltaic,” that featured Epstein hopping up and down his falcetto vocal range atop heavy guitar riffs, bright, synth- driven “ Murder Me,” sing-song, rock track, “ Flagship,” and buzzing and bubbly “ Powerlines.” Some newer tracks, “ Original Fever,” “ St. John,” “ 20212,” and “ Even If We Die” are available for public consumption at live shows only, so be sure to catch Jump Into the Gospel on November 5 at Pianos. -Meijin Bruttomesso

   

Upcoming NYC artists playing CMJ: Alyson Greenfield

Who would've thought in 2008, when aspiring musician named Alyson Greenfield released her debut CD, Jewel-esque 'Tuscaloosa', that in 2 years she’ ll evolve into full-speed ambitious business woman with her own music festival and a unique take on music, which mixes electronics, pop, folk and even rap (there are a lot of things Alyson can do with her voice). It seems that she fuses music styles as easily as she makes jokes between the songs during her countless gigs all over New York. On September, 26 Alyson kicked-off her all-female festival 'Tinderbox' and while working on British and French versions of the festival she somehow finds time to constantly come up with fresh material, which includes collaboration with beatboxers, glockenspiel covers and songs about... giving birth to the keyboards? Check this lady out at this year’ s CMJ Music Marathon on October, 22 at Spike Hill (Beyond Race Magazine Showcase) and 23 at Bar Marchless (TJO Presents). - Mikhael Agafonov
